NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Middle Tennessee will experience the effects of the moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Beta Thursday, as an upper-level trough of low pressure helped “siphon” moisture into the mid-south from the system which was still some 600 miles away.
The rain on Wednesday was light, but heavier rain is expected in south and southeast Middle Tennessee on Thursday and Thursday night.
A Flood Watch is in effect for Wayne, Lawrence, Giles, Marshall, Bedford, Coffee, Warren Van Buren, and Grundy counties from 6am-midnight Thursday, AND A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Lincoln, Moore, and Franklin counties from 4am-7pm Thursday.
Some of these areas could possibly see as much as 3-4″ of rain through Thursday night into early Friday morning.
Models suggesting higher amounts that could cause localized flooding will be south and southeast in Middle Tennessee.
Please stay weather alert in our southern and southeast counties, and remember, “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!”
